I was preliminarily diagnosed with MG in December after a 3 day hospital stay because I could not walk further than 10 feet without my legs giving out. Both antibody tests have come back negative but I had a positibve EMG. I return for my second EMG 2/5. I am on 60mg prednisone a day and 60mg of mestinon twice a day or up to 4 times as needed. I have not seen much improvement. I am still ambulating with a walker, can not carry my 5 month old because my arms are just too weak, can't pull up my own hair, get items off shelves or do much of anything without having to take a break. They have not checked my thymus gland they just keep increasing the prednisone which does not seem to help. Anyone else had these same results. I am scared and frustrated thinking that my life may never be "normal" again.
